A luscious yet manicured and layered landscape describes this California backyard complete with water features and outdoor dining makes this a weekend retreat a daily treat. Thoughtful landscape planning with a functional foundation and easy-care flowering vines and shrubs produced an oasis of natural beauty and relaxation that is simply captivating.
Comfort and function are seen in the poolside layout that affords a tranquil environment for relaxation.
This outdoor living space is anchored by box woods in shapely forms, vine-covered wooden arbors with Cécile Brunner climbing roses, wisteria and creeping fig.
Antique lanterns and vintage water features and comfortable seating round out this lovely outdoor living space.
It comes as not surprise that this beautiful outdoor space houses a wonderful potting shed whose entry embraces a vintage door perfectly suited for the overall landscape design.
Although it took years for the landscape to mature it was worth the wait and is enjoyed year round because of its west coast location. A perfect backyard to come home to everyday!
